To really be able to handle those Sidney, Norwich, and Oneonta, New York, roadways, the SUV you end up choosing needs to be equipped with the right attributes. That's where this Subaru Forester trim level review comes in. Bill Rapp Subaru of Norwich has compiled this review of each of its five trims to give you the opportunity to pick out the version that fits in best with your specific priorities and sensibilities. Read on to find out which one it will be.

Standard Premium Limited Sport Touring


Subaru Forester

The engine that propels the base Forester trim is the same that you'll find under the hood of every trim that follows. This 2.5-liter 4-cylinder machine is able to produce a maximum output of 182 horsepower. With this kind of thrust at your disposal, you can be sure you'll be able to hold your own while you're going from adventure to adventure. 

The Forester also has a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds when properly equipped. This fact will come in handy if you're planning on pulling a small camper or trailer. 

Subaru Forester Premium Trim

When outside temperatures start to get colder, you and one of your passengers are likely going to be happy that the Forester Premium trim comes with heated front seats. No matter what it feels like outside, you'll have the opportunity to take advantage of some toasty temperatures inside. 

One safety feature that's well worth mentioning for the Premium trim is the available Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. This feature increases your overall awareness by telling you when a vehicle is occupying one of your blind spots if you're attempting to change lanes, and when one has crossed into your path while you're driving in reverse. 

Subaru Forester Sport Trim

The Forester Sport trim is next. One aspect of convenience you're sure to appreciate here is its available power rear gate that includes automatic close, a height memory function, and a vehicle lock button. As a result, you won't have to worry about pulling it shut, not fitting into confined spaces, or being left unsecured.  Subaru Forester Limited Trim

The dual-zone automatic climate control system that comes with the Limited trim makes it possible for you and your front-seat passenger to enjoy your preferred temperature settings without worrying about making the other person uncomfortable.

Subaru Forester Touring Trim

Finally, there's the Touring trim. This is the highest Subaru Forester trim level. It provides you with such supportive safety features as Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB), which keeps track of the area directly behind the SUV in order to watch out for objects that might end up in your path while you're backing up. If something is there, RAB is able to bring you to a complete stop to help you prevent a collision from occurring.
